The Persian Baths at Kidichi are located north east of Zanzibar Island in the main plantation area. Built in 1850 by Sultan Seyyid Said , it was for his wife who was the grand-daughter of the Shah of Persia, Fatah Ali, it is decorated in ornamental Persian stucco work. The remarkably preserved baths have a series of domed bathhouses with deep stone baths and massive seats. The bath-house was built so they could refresh themselves after the journey from town.

Today, you can enter the bath-house, and see the changing room, bathing pool and massage tables. Unfortunately, the bath-house has not been especially well maintained, and there is mould growing on much of the stucco. A colony of bats seems to have taken up residence here as well. At the top of the domed ceiling is a circle of small windows: these used to be stained glass, which cast patterns of coloured light over the white walls.
